Coniston Hotel Wedding Photographer I Ashleigh & Graeme

Last weekend I was back at the gorgeous Coniston Hotel in Skipton North Yorkshire for Ashleigh & Graeme's FUN wedding. Ashleigh & Graeme actually saw me years ago at Claire & Stephen's wedding at Hazelwood Castle over 5 years ago now and they loved our FUN style of Wedding Photography.

I started early morning in the conference room upstairs with all the girls getting ready and after looking at the weather report everyday for the whole week as we had had some real wet weather to say it was JUNE! #whereissummer I was praying it would stay nice, so far at this point the weather and light was perfect.
Graeme was buzzing about the hotel in the morning too and I loved the jackets Graeme and his guys where wearing (we love being different) so I managed the odd shot of him as he wandered around trying not to look too nervous (didn't look nervous at all tbf)

The ceremony was in the restaurant part and always love this space at Coniston with the open wood beams and barn type feel, the room looked fab!

After the ceremony I always like to encourage some interaction with the Bride & Groom and at Coniston Hotel the conservatory area is literally the next room to the ceremony room (where I set our super wide photobooth backdrop up later in the eve) with gorgeous natural light streaming in through all the big glass windows and roof. After some time getting some congrats type shots I got all the wedding party outside to get a main group shot and confetti (at this point it was starting to drizzle arghhhhhh but as I knew the weather could not ease up I just kept the energy up and got the shots before everyone rushed back inside)

I used the ceremony room for some family shots with a nice white backdrop but also knew the light with the downlighters wasn't the best so was hoping we could re create some later outside in the natural light (always best)

Speeches were before the reception meal and after getting some speeches shots I spent some time in the restaurant getting treated to Haddock & Chips and Mushy Peas (awesome and thanks guys) plus also as I knew some of the staff from previous weddings one of the ladies said she would fetch me a pudding! #result

The rain did stop for a while later in the eve before the night do so I used some time to take Ashleigh & Graeme to the top part of the grounds overlooking the lake and we got the most amazing sunset!

Absolutely FAB DAY with lots of fun & laughter and really loved every minute guys thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day

Literally over 95% of all the images were shots with natural light (apart from the photobooth ones and dance floor and the odd creative flash shot outside, I much prefer the natural light and using awesome Nikon DSLR's enables me to capture lots of images without you being aware. Currently using Nikon D3s (amazing camera) and Nikon D750 (also amazing) with 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8 16-35 F4
